Bernhard / bleak.at netlabel

BLEAK is a netlabel. we distribute art that does not fit in elsewhere. this may be difficult music, atonal music, sounds, noises, spoken word, improvisation, experimental. music that is not intended to make you dance. but even that depends on HOW you would dance to it. BLEAK is also a platform for any other form of art that can be presented on an internet site. there will always be images, videos, paintings, drawings or poetry that reflect the ideas and imaginations we have. BLEAK is the home for artists who don't care too much about pleasing the audience. this does not make us better or special. it just represents an alternative to the pop culture, where music finds the audience. we hope that the audience finds us, because they are looking for us. BLEAK is not a counterpart to anything or something special. it is an extension. we hope you like what you see and hear... and feel. if something makes you feel uncomfortable, it may be intentional.

As on her previous album, Ivana Primorac plays all instruments herself, also recorded and mixed them on her own, and managed to maintain the unique atmosphere she creates by combining musique concrete with cold, electronic sounds and her sometimes only ghastly whispering voice. 53 welcomes you back in an infected world, allows you to be a spectator, but mind you, she...

I†† is the project of Chris Hopper, unambiguously positioned in the Witch House/Ghost Drone genre. It is not that simple though. While I†† is obviously influenced by bands like Salem, Mater Suspiria Vision, oOoOO, White Ring and suchlike, it has a very unique approach. Probably it's not really sufficient to pigeonhole I†† as yet another Witch House act, just listen and you may discover there's more to it than that. Artist link: http://www.eyedoublecross.com/

4 improvisations recorded the 4th of November 2006 Dague de miséricorde is Aurore Dudevant (clarinet) + Philippe Zulaica (violin) We are also known as Drone and Forces Mobiles. We improvise without any predefined rule or structure. We try to create minimal / basic / repetitive compositions. So constrating mistakes and accidents become events. Silence is one of our instrument. We play together once a week since 2005. During one hour we improvise a strange and crashing conversation between us.

We are very happy to have Josef Nadek back on Bleak, with the third part of his "To Infect And Persist" series, where compilation tracks are compiled into one release. Josef Nadek is one of the most interesting projects in the Noise genre these days - radical and uncompromising, but with a love for details. Josef Nadek creates ultra dark atmospheres, scaring and haunting tracks, with a broad range of sounds. The Austrian project is as mysterious as it is extreme. Little to nothing is...

Drugs For Drunks is the solo project of Diego de Regil, musician and video artist, whose music can be best described as an apocalyptic mixture of Drone, Industrial, Noise and Darkwave, more recent works with a taste of Witch House from the likes of Salem or White Ring. Using drum machines, synthesizers and guitars, his recordings and live sets cascade into huge, dismal walls of sound. He recently toured with Italian act Mushy, DOSE, Ritualz, El Resplandor and Douglas McCarthy of Nitzer Ebb. In...

PCT is very experimental, atonal and chaotic - but surprises with sudden changes of mood and cathartic moments.

Erynnia is an Austrian/Polish based artist, who has been creating her very unique mixture of dark atmospheric sounds and her incredibly distinctive voice for a couple of years now.

Some of her songs can...
